Pre-Series A

At Slab, we build beautiful software for teams. We believe that a team's ability to store and organize information ultimately defines their ability to execute. Slab is like a knowledge base or wiki, but reimagined to be fast, intuitive, and powerful. We think of it as a long-term memory for teams.

Active Roles
Why join us?

  • Our approach to work is inspired by companies that have a big impact while staying relatively small. We embrace remote and flexible work arrangements.

  • We thrive on utilizing the latest technologies to put a simple and elegant product on the center stage.
